Just Blowing Smoke

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

And tar. And toxic chemicals. And cancer-causing substances. And probably a ponytail that reeks like dirty ashtray and the stank breath that goes with it.

But a smokeless Electronic Super Mini Cigarette? That’s not crazy — it’s Kaos.

With the stylings of a classic cig, the plastic rechargable device simulates the traditional smoking experience: One puff on the faux filter and the indicator light on the tip glows red, signaling that the nicotine in the cartridge is being heated by the atomizer and delivered. The tobacco-scented vapor released is the clincher.

Which means smokers or soon-to-be quitters can get their nic fix without most of the bad stuff (carbon monoxide, tar, carcinogens, fire hazards, smoky sweaters).

Of course, there’s always a chance you could become addicted.

Now that would be a real drag.
